Engineering risk and responsibility in repair

Dr Kate Crawford talks about her quest to understand how engineers are embroiled in the repair of dwellings.

Kate draws on examples from the UK, Haiti, Japan and New Zealand to look at damage and viability assessments, thresholds and algorithms used to make decisions about the built environment and notions of choice in making a home. She also touches on how processes that bypass repair come about through the ways we are taught to think, represent information and conduct ourselves, and how these are being both disrupted by and absorbed into new technologies.
